Already love us in the summer? Then maybe it’s time
to get to know us in the winter.

If you loved all the warm-weather recreation here, and consider yourself of hardy stock, then a
winter getaway to DeForest Windsor should be on your vacation training ground listgallery_img_57 too.

There are cross-country ski trails to give track and skate skiers a workout, plus lit night trails. If snowshoes are your favored footwear, we’ve got that too, including snowshoeing among coldwater springs. Throw in some warming houses and a charming old church on top of a hill and it’s a snowy storybook tale in the making. Three not to miss – Indian Lake Park, Token Creek County Park and

Western Green Park.

In nearby Madison, the University of Wisconsin Arboretum with 10+ miles of trails is a
must-experience for cross-country skiers. Plan your overnight visit to our area around one
of their candlelight skis.

Six Madison parks have skiing too and some even have equipment rentals.gallery_img_59

Governor Nelson State Park is a mere 10 miles away and offers both cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, some of which are Fido-friendly.

For exhilaration of the downhill variety, Devil’s Head  is less than a half-hour away. Cascade Mountain is also tops with skiers and snowboarders.



Prefer to rent skiing/snowboarding/snowshoeing gear rather than pack it? Fontana Sports is your rental headquarters.  One last cold-weather tradition: Take a twirl at nearby TenneyActuve and Fit Winter Ph Park. There’s a large skating rink, skate rentals and new warming house. It’s a very romantic spot   in the winter.
